{ Literary Junkies June Linkup - Silver Linings Playbook }



1) What are you currently reading?

I just finished reading Beside Your Heart and Otherwise Occupied for upcoming reviews but what I'm reading for fun... Beautiful Stranger. Max Stella is my new favorite Brit.  It's a classic story of good girl (who wants to be bad) and the bad boy (who wants to be good for her). It's book #2 in the Beautiful Bastard Series and I'm looking forward to more by Christina Lauren.



2. Who is your favorite book character and why?

My favorite book character ever is easier than my favorite song.  I LOVE Eve Dallas from the In Death Series by J.D. Robb. Eve is a wonderfully complex character and I love being able to see her adapt and grow over the series.  And she is married to Roarke!

 

3. What would the title of your memoir be?

If anyone ever got bored enough to write it I would call it Now I Can Take A Nap! 


4. You be the director! Cast your favorite book characters for the movie version that has not yet been made. 

If I could cast any movie right now it would be The Game Changer.  I've been really loving sports romance lately and there's no on more badass than Jack F'n Carter.

5. What book or series do you remember reading as an elementary/middle school age?

I bought a new Sweet Valley High, Babysitters Club and/or Fear Street each week with my allowance.  I thought I was so cool being "brave" enough to read Fear Street.  At the time they were super scary to me!

   



This month's book...

This month's Literary Junkies book selection was The Silver Linings Playbook.  The first time I read SLP, I kinda read through it quick because I wanted to watch the movie before the Academy Awards were on.

I have a personal rule that I have to read the book before I can see the movie and I only 4 days to read it before the movie was on it's way out of my little local theater.   I didn't really have to see it before the awards ceremony honestly but I really wanted to see Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence on the big screen.  I'd only recently discovered Jennifer Lawrence (thank you Hunger Games!) and I've loved Bradley Cooper since Will loved Sydney.  I liked the movie but realized they either changed a lot of the story or I missed a few things on my first read through.

I read The Silver Linings Playbook again this month and I have to admit it's one of the few books that have been better after I've seen the movie.  It's a wonderful and heartbreaking book and I'm looking forward to discussing it at the Literary Junkies Twitter party tonight at 8:00 eastern.

  1. Jensen Ackles (please stop me from drooling)... what was I going to tell you again?

    Oh yeah, I thought the same about Silver Lining, then I realized as a movie I wouldn't have made sense. Screenwriting isn't easy especially taking it from a book.

  2. It's kind of funny to me that most of us grew up reading the same books! You're "reading now" list sounds intriguing!
